Sep 22, 2015

If Maximum Rock’n’roll was a BMX zine, Dead Sailin would be the West Virginia scene report. The whole zine is about BMX culture in the wild and wonderful state. The content is primarily interviews; these include a local biker Steven Hamilton, the BMX clothing company Shug Inc., Menstrual Cycles bike club, and the band High Fives & Hell Yeahs. There are also a lot of pictures of guys doing tricks on their BMX bikes. I was pleasantly surprised at how interesting the interviews were to someone like myself who would theoretically have little interest in West Virginia (I have no connection to that state) or BMX. I grew up with kids who rode BMX seriously, though, so this brought back some good memories. This is real solid for a first issue. Keep up the good work, dudes! -Kurt Morris (415 Hillscrest Dr., Ravenswood, WV26164,
